Egypt's battle to end female genital mutilation

A court date has been set for a verdict in Egypt's landmark trial in a case of female genital mutilation (FGM).

The case follows the death of a 13-year-old girl in June 2013. Her doctor and her father are accused of subjecting her to FGM.

Over 90% of Egyptian women under 50 have experienced the practice, according to government statistics, despite being banned in 2008.
